The offering with AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir is planned to go live later this summer, the Berlin-based air cargo booking platform announced Monday.
AirBridgeCargo (ABC) and CargoLogicAir (CLA) are entering into a partnership with air cargo booking platform cargo.one to become the first all-cargo airlines to make their capacities available for digital booking with instant confirmation, the Berlin-based platform announced Monday.
ABC and CLA will be able to digitally market their global capacities to cargo.one’s customer base of more than 200 freight forwarders, which will be able to search for, compare and book offers of the airlines. The offering is planned to go live later this summer after the integration of the carriers’ in-house systems with cargo.one is complete.
“We are very excited to enable this industry first,” said Moritz Claussen (pictured above), managing director and co-founder of cargo.one, which was founded in 2017, in a statement. “CBA and CLA are spearheading innovation for all-cargo airlines to become more digital and thus customer-centric. And they are now able to access the untapped market of smaller and medium sized forwarders that were previously not able to book with them.”
ABC, which operates a fleet of 18 Boeing 747 freighters, serves 35 destinations worldwide: 14 in Asia, 11 in Europe, six in the U.S and four in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The Moscow-headquartered airline offers air freight solutions for the healthcare, aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, heavy machinery, fashion and apparel, high-tech and e-commerce industries, according to its website.
CLA, which was founded in 2015 and is the United Kingdom’s only main deck freighter airline, connects British companies with markets in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific with its fleet of nose-loading Boeing 747 freighters. Its services include off-size cargo, oil and gas, aerospace and aircraft on ground, humanitarian aid, perishables and pharmaceuticals, its website states.
